Just a quick update of the a few developments in the virtual reality “world” and metaverse.

FOVE’s work in the VR industry is admirable and I am excited to see if their eye tracking hardware get picked up by any major VR hardware producers, however the current FOVE specs fall slightly short of the Rift and Vive.
The FOVE 0 will ship to backers on December 2016 and January 2017 for this round of pre-orders.

Oculus Rift Third Sensor Available for Pre-order
Last, but not least Oculus has is not accepting pre-orders for single Rift Sensors. The stand alone sensor will cost $79 and will be ship during the same shipping window as the Oculus Touch, which does come with a second Oculus sensor. The need to purchase a third sensor to create room-scale VR experiences on the Rift is still being questioned by internet forums. However, most reports thus far have said having the third Oculus sensor creates an immersive experience on par with the HTC Vive and possibly better.
